"Seven Days" Has Never Failed to
"Seven Days," the play that set
the prevailing fashion for comedy,
which like all good things has many
imitators but no equal, will be at the
Ridgeway, Tuesday, January 9, com
ing direct from the Astor Theater,
New York, -where at the beginning of
the present season it scored a third
year on Hruadway. If for "Seven
Days" recommendations were needed
it would be furnished by this New
York record alone, apart from the
play's success in Chicago, Boston,
Philadelphia and elsewhere. In New
York, "Seven Days" ran for two years
without interrupticfc, then returns to
reach a third year, a record shown by
no other comedy ever produced in
this country. This speaks unanswer-
ably for a play that has swept the
continent with laughter and upset the
gravity of a nation. For three years
New York howled with delight at the
fun in "Seven Days," that doesn't let
up for a fraction of a second. For
six months Chicago roared itself
hoarse over the comedy, for four
months Boston shouted with laugh
ter, while Philadelphia, only a little
behind in length of time, was as vo
ciferously merry over the most de
lightful play in twenty years. There
is no getting away from facts like j
these. They prove "Seven Days" the |
great popular comedy of the time, i
Designed by its authors, Mary Rob- j
crts Rinehart and Avery Hopwood, to I
entertain and amuse, to create whole
some gayety and clean, honest laugh
ter, this play has conferred on hu
manity the true blessing of happy
hearted, unqualified joyousness.

Cheer up, all ye heavy laden.
Burdened down with anxious care;
Speed on, winter—spring is coming.
Glad with help for everywhere.
Work and wages, warmth and sunshine,
Cheer up, friends, they'll soon be here.
Ah-«'e know how winter pinches—
Keep up courage, spring Is near.
After New Year, time goes flying.
And yet swifter, would we urge.
Soon will winter snows and trials
Into spring's sweet message merge.
Then with hearts relieved, and grateful

Bringing with it, comfort's cheer.
And this year, if we can manage—
Let us save with firmest hold.
Just a mite of every wage earned.
As a guard through winter's cold.
Yes, the pressing needs are double.
For every cent we earn;
To bank a bit on each pay-day.
Will take a purpose stern.

When winter storms whirl round.

A Careful Pernsal Will Prove Its
Value to Every Colfax Reader.
The average man is a doubter, and
there is little wonder that this is so.
Misrepresentations make peeple skep
tics. Now-a-days the public ask for
better evidence than the testimony of
strangers. Here is proof which should
convince every Colfax reader.
T. A. Ireland, the undefeated
champion crack rifle shot of the
Northwest, residing at 218 Mill St.,
Colfax, Wash., says: "About two
years ago kidney trouble made its ap
pearance in my case. My sight be
came poor and black spots often ap
peared before my eyes. Pains in the
small of my back began to bother me
and became so severe that I was
practically helpless. The kidney se
cretions were highly colored and
passed irregularly, this weakness dis
turbing my rest at night. I used over
eighty bottles of medicine from one
physician but did not improve to any
extent. I became very nervous and
felt miserable in every way. One of
my relatives advised me to try Doan's
Kidney Pills and I procured a supply.
To my gratification, I improved soon
after beginning their use and I am
glad to make the fact known that I
was completely cured. I wish to ex
press my appreciation for what
Doan's Kidney Pills did for me and I
shall be pleased to answer any in
quiries about my experience."
